While I do my best to keep up with current events, I can’t help but click EVERY health & fitness article that catches my eye. By the end of the week I’ll have a list of bookmarked articles – some to read & toss, some to e-mail to fam & friends, & others that I hang on to. I finally have that outlet to largely share those that I find most beneficial, or perhaps most thought-provoking. Each Friday I’ll list my favorite articles, everything from healthy recipes to quick workouts to new research in the health & fitness field. Now let’s get some inspiration flowing!
I know FOR SURE that the common cold is floating around, as well as a brutal tummy bug. Just this week I got a hold of both (yay, me)! I am finally eating normal again & couldn’t be more excited to open a new jar of raw almond butter from Trader Joe’s. However, for days I couldn’t taste a thing & was also too afraid to eat anything besides crackers or chicken soup. FitSugar shares the best choices to help you heal in no time.
YES! Is anyone else dreaming of being able to master a handstand for more than .2 seconds? Or maybe you already can! To my surprise, I’ve been training for years through plank variations. Head over to HuffPost Healthy Living for the 3 step training plan to get you in handstand shape in just a matter of weeks!
Shape Magazine‘s ‘Ask the Diet Doctor’ series discusses the fad over having hot water with lemon each morning. As for me, I go through phases of drinking this first thing in the morning, but usually I prefer the smooth taste of coffee. According to this article, hot lemon water may not be for everyone. It turns out, while lemons are a healthy citrus fruit, one lemon a day will not create huge results.
I’m all over anything that coins the term “super-happy!” If you’ve been feeling the winter blues lately, you’re definitely not alone. Health Magazine offers a bunch of ideas to embrace this time of year from taking your workout outdoors to enjoying ‘once a year activities’ like ice-skating & sledding. I’m going skiing this weekend & even though I’ll be freezing, it will be so nice to breathe in fresh air all day before cozying up to a fireplace!
Oh She Glows is a vegan blog that I’ve been following for years! While I’m not vegan, her recipes are amazing & true crowd pleasers for all types of eaters. In honor of skiing this weekend, I want to share with you my go-to coconut whipped cream recipe! Make sure to follow her exact directions or your desired consistency may be a little off. My family doesn’t miss the dairy at all, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
What are your fave sites for keeping up with health & fitness?
.. now it’s time for some healthified hot chocolate to go with that whipped cream!
CHEERS to a wonderful weekend!
